Visiting foodie friends overseas is such a joy and privilege, not only for a good catch up but sharing sumptuous bites and drinks is such a memory maker. Every time we visit our friends Charlie and Mike in Cirencester UK, they always introduce us to the latest food hot spots in their area.
It’s already November but our Oktoberfest memories seem to linger forever. Oktoberfest Weisn was a dream come true for myself and Steve, our love of the hoppy drink has taken us this year exploring several countries like Japan, Philippines, Belgium, Ireland, United Kingdom and culminating in the mighty Octoberfest in Munich, Germany, in the quest of the best beers. Our journey wasn’t that easy, we had a few hit and misses along the way but it was all worth it.
Boasting a relaxed setting, an open space with indoor and outdoor dining areas, and sustainable offerings, Bellbird Dining + Bar located at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre is so much more than just a dining destination.

Where did the time go, Steve and I first visited the island of Boracay in the Philippines in the late nineties. Located in the Western Visayas, this tiny island famous for its pristine white beaches and parties, has become the most visited destination in the Philippines and was named as the best island gateway in the world in 2012 based on a survey of readers by Travel+Leisure and has continued to gain in popularity.
Cabra-Vale Diggers in the South West Suburbs of Sydney has created a real buzz with the opening of dining precinct District 8, the newest and most exciting phase of the multi-million dollar redevelopment, one of the most progressive and ambitious projects to date for the club, which has enjoyed 93 years of heritage.
When I think of Brooklyn, the first thing that comes to my mind is the Brooklyn Bridge that connects between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Without a doubt, this suspension bridge is one of my favourite spots in New York City, it can be crowded at times but the breathtaking Manhattan skyline, sunset and river views never fails to impress and there’s always something new waiting to be discovered at both ends of the bridge, and is a Mecca for foodies.
